Cannot detlete corrupted printer software

That is correct, it was not installed correctly. Try running setup and choosing FULL and if you get a note that says "Has already been installed" then look for an option to 'reinstall anyway' If that should fail, contact Dell.

LAN Printer sometimes doesn't print and requires restart

your best bet would be to see about having the NIB (network interface board) firmware and system firmware updated there are so many issues with firmware causing network packet loss, also are you printing using a standard tcp/ip port with the ip address? if so try changing it to the host name of the printer, that information is available from the configuration pages.
I have had more success using host name than tcp/ip. especially if your IP scope is dynamic.

if this answers your query then please rate accordingly.

Every time I want to print I get an error message about the pipline filter. This is so aggrevating I want to throw it through a window. I have homework to do and now can't! . Can anyone tell me how to get...

I did some research and is sounds like the Print Filter Pipeline Host error message has to do with the Non-English Version of .net framework. Download and install the files below. Try to download and install these files in lowest to highest order. All versions are needed to make everything work correctly. Make sure you also have the latest Java.

Samsung ML 2010 under mac os X 10.5

I found a solution that worked for me by prowling around various Apple discussion forums. The two keys to the solution for me were numbers 3 and 5 below.

1. Opened print/fax preferences
2. Opened Add printer by clicking the +
3. For protocol, select HP jetdirect-socket (not IPP or LDP)
4. Determined the IP address for my Belkin wired print server and typed this into the Address line of printer setup
5. Manually selected the printer driver as ML-2010. It is in the list of drivers but is in the M's, not under the Samsung drivers.
6. This worked for me. I've seen reports from people who had to power cycle their print server and/or printer as well.

Laserjet 1000 & DI-524UP

The HP LaserJet 1000 is a Host Based printer and so is not compatible with your router's USB print server.

You cannot use this printer with this print server, it needs to be connected directly to a computer that can run the HP drivers/software.

From D-Links tech specs for your router:-

** Host-based printers are not supported. Please check with the printer manufacturer if your printer model is host-based (GDI).
